I'm due with my first baby later this month. Today, I had to go for a check-up at the breast clinic (I have a cyst they are keeping an eye on), and so I asked the doctor if my severely dry skin and occasional problems with nipple eczema would make breastfeeding difficult for me. She told me that she had really dry skin, and the cracks and peels were terrible when she breastfed. Then she said that I could try, but I would probably have to give up because of this. I'm so discouraged now that I've been told I'm going to fail before I even try. I don't know what to do.
